1978 FORD PINTO $11,995
Sold In 1971 Ford introduced the first in a continuing succession of sub-compact American-made cars in answer to the Asian competition. The Ford Pinto was born under the influence of Japanese imports with an urgency to compete against the newest wave of small, fuel-efficient cars from over-seas. This pristine example is from 1978 and is a uniquely low mileage, well maintained car driven only 10,500 miles since new. It's 2.3 liter 4-cylinder engine is backed by the durable 4-speed, manually-shifted transmission. With no power steering, brakes or air conditioning fuel efficiency is the name of the game with this great little American economy car. I personally drove many Pintos in the late-1970s and early-1980s and LOVED the simpicity, durability and dependabiity of these great little cars. This one was bought new in the San Diego, California area where it resided until we purchased it in March of 2011. This is a prime example of Ford's 1970s import-fighter and has never been repaired featuring all factory-original body panels and mechanical components and it simply drives like a dream! Make an appointment today to see this rare, well preserved and maintained cutie!
